    Very good! I added a spoonful of hoisin sauce to the chicken along with the brown sugar, soy sauce, etc. Loved it!

    This dish was great. I used low sodium soy sauce to cut some of the salt and added honey to the sauce. It was fantastic!

    Really salty. Might reduce the amount of soy sauce next time. Otherwise its an easy week night dinner.

    Probably the best meal I’ve had in a while. Added some pineapples to the pan and some teriyaki sauce as well.

    Amazing! We fed a lot of people so tripled the recipe. People couldn’t believe that it wasn’t a bottled sauce! It’s definitely going into our rotation of meals, especially during the lockdown period! Thanks so much!

    I used my Hawaiian friend's recommended Aloha brand soy sauce. It turned out pretty good but I think next time I'll try it with a little less sugar and a tsp each of fresh garlic and ginger. I'll definitely work this into the monthly rotation with some minor tweaking.

    Very good @ easy to make. I tweaked it a little bit by using Kikkoman low sodium Soy Sauce, Kikkoman seasoning mix, red onions, and brown rice. I will definitely make it again, and again!

    Used regular sugar because I didn’t have brown sugar. Also put in the broccoli w the chicken for it to absorb the sauce. Husband said he liked it better than most teriyaki’s he’s had because it didn’t just taste of soy sauce

    Turmed out really well. We didnt add the salt and pepper to the chicken and glad we didn't seemed pretty salty but overall ot was a hit. Will make it again and turn it into a stir fry next time.

    It was really delicious and likely but there is no need to salt at first

    I felt like it was a little too much sesame seed tiny bit on sweet side. I added a little rice vinegar and added one chopped green onion. I also tossed the chicken in a Tbsp of corn starch to give the chicken a little crispiness and also help thicken sauce a little. Overall simple, quick and good base recipe.

    Very Quick and easy. Would highly recommend! I would simply suggest, to give the source time to thicken. Massive thank you!

    Very good. I would take out more oil next time before adding the soy sauce to hopefully make it a bit thicker of a sauce.

    Amazing!! Sauce was much thinner than I would have thought but otherwise perfect.
